Wyndham Port Township
A testament to the early days of Wyndham
Was first established in 1885 – Gold fever was the catalyst. Within a few years approximately 5000 miners had passed through on the way to the goldfields of Halls Creek. Numerous hotels and grog shanties sprang up. Only two remain – The Six Mile and the Wyndham Town Hotel. Pastoral stations were established after epic overland cattle drives form the eastern states.
When the Wyndham Meat Works and Wyndham Wharf opened in 1919, the town became the major service centre for the region. Historic buildings still stand as testament to the early days of Wyndham.
